Get ready to feel some secondhand embarrassment.
Florida and Florida State squared off Tuesday night, and the Seminoles ended a five-game losing streak to the Gators. But how they did it will make you feel very bad for one Florida guard.
FSU was down 63-62 in the game’s final seconds, and Devon Bookert sunk a 3-pointer just before the buzzer to give the ‘Noles the 65-63 win. Unfortunately for the Gators, it went in because their own Jacob Kurtz accidentally tipped it.
Kurtz, a senior, actually is well liked by Gator fans. He started as a student manager his freshman year before making the team as a walk-on in 2011, and he captured the hearts of the Florida faithful.
Hopefully, that will be enough for Kurtz to make fans forget about his little mistake this time around.
